Pray for Our Pastor:  Please join us in room seven 10 minutes before each service to pray for our pastor and for his message to touch the hearts of those listening.

March Calling Team:  Please call Bruce T and Julie L with any special concerns or requests.

March Mission of the Month: The Gideons International is an Association of Christian business and professional men and their wives dedicated to telling people about Jesus through associating together for service, sharing personal testimony, and by providing Bibles and New Testaments. While we are often recognized for our work with hotels, we also place and distribute Scriptures in strategic locations so they are available to those who want them, as well as to those who may not know they need them.

Church Members: There are Nominee ballots for each member of your family that is 18 and up, and also a member of our church, in your mailbox. Please fill these out and recommend two members each for the office of elder or deacon.  There is also a letter explaining this process in your mailbox.  Ballots are due back by next Sunday, March 10. Please place them in the box provided.  It is on the table next to the mailboxes. Thank you.

Free Book Table in the FLC: Jack and Marcia will have a table set up in the FLC with lots of free books! Please stop by and check it out after service.

CONNECT Wednesday: Puppet Show!
